Jersey Shore has a website?

http://www.mtv.com/shows/jersey_shore/series.jhtml

Yes!  The Jersey Shore television show has it’s own website.  Don’t worry if you’ve missed an episode there’s no need to panic.  Every single episode is online just waiting for you to watch.  I know I want to watch Snookie get punched in the face again.  Do you want to look like Pauly D?  They’ve got his shirts online and with a swipe of a card you’ll be getting play just like the Jersey Shore God.  You can check out their photos and even

learn a little more about each cast member.  It has almost everything you would need to know about the Jersey Shore television show except there is nowhere for people to leave their opinions.  A blog would be perfect for this website because I have plenty to say about these deprived people that have no sense of the real world.  This is could be a very successful website, but only idiots that have no time on their hands would actually visit this site.

Gotta Love Disney

Am I watching the same movie? Every Disney movie followed the same theme or general direction. For some reason there was always a missing parent. Why was this included in every Disney movie? I feel like they would have included two parents because it’s standard in our society. There is always a good character and an evil character. The good guy ends up falling in love with some a beautiful women and the evil character turns good or dies. The good character always has some kind of trouble throughout the movie, but ends up with a happy ending.

As a child watching these movies was my life. I’d watch them over and over again. I don’t know what it is as a child, but these movies were the best.  It gave me hope and I thought my life would end up just like Simba or Aladin. I knew at some point in my life I would face trouble, but because it happens in Disney movies, I knew I’d live happily ever after with my tramp.

Disney was everywhere. They promoted the movies through toys in the happy meals at McDonalds. I was a Disney character almost every year for Halloween. My family and I even visited Disney World at least five times.  If you haven’t been there you have to check it out.

Disney is such a great thing for families and it really does bring them together. There’s just something special about Disney as a whole that makes everyone happy.

When I realized that Disney was just a bunch of made up stories and noticed that toys didn’t actually talk I was bummed. Children need to have that imaginary world that Disney creates. Everything is peaceful and they teach children right from wrong. The Disney impact really does work and creates responsible young individuals.

FACEBOOK=LIFE

http://www.articlesbase.com/social-marketing-articles/effect-of-facebook-735895.html

Facebook has emerged as the top social networking site and confirmed by fact that it is one of the top 100 sites visited in the world today.  It allows you to share videos, pictures, games, messages, and communicate with friends and family all over the world for free!  It is a way to check out the lives of complete strangers, which sounds a bit creepy, BUT IT’S SO MUCH FUN!

It’s so popular because it’s so easy to use.  It allows you to search for people that share the same interests and even helped with the US Presidential Campaign. Obama was a genius by campaigning a lot through facebook to speak out to the youth and enhance awareness.

Facebook is the communication of the future. Facebook is an advertisement. FACEBOOK IS GOD!  Everything important will be posted on facebook.  There are already companies placing their ads on facebook.  What a great idea.  If its one of the top 100 sites visited around the world, then obviously their product will be seen.

I love Facebook.  Whenever I’m bored I’m on Facebook.  I talk to my parents through Facebook because I told them I’d rather talk online rather than the telephone. It saves money and it uses less effort on my part.  I can keep in touch with friends over seas and it also costs me nothing.  The games are fun to play and it’s always a good time when challenging your friends.  It’s even better when you see ridiculous videos of drunk idiots that you’ve never met.  Who wouldn’t like facebook?  Sign up now!

Facebook has grown in such a short period of time and will only increase because of the diversity it has to offer.  There will only be greater things added to facebook and I’m sure everyone is excited to see what is coming.

2035?

The Utopian life in year 2035

Life is simple and the weather is always great.  There is no such thing as being poor and everyone is wealthy.  With new technologies and an increase in new discoveries our world has become a perfect place.  There is no such thing as being ugly because plastic surgery is now common with everyday life.

Communication is similar to today’s process, only telephones have video communication.  You can literally see the person you are talking to on the phone.  Television and movies have become ridiculously real and unbelievable.   There are advertisements everywhere!  On teeth, tattoos, feet, clouds, grass, etc.

Everyone is happy and the government is now run by an executive board.  It’s almost as if there are 5 presidents.  They all make their decisions based on a vote, three or more votes makes their decision.  Some of the changes made are drinking and smoking is illegal, all weapons have been destroyed, and money is no longer necessary.  Everyone shares everything as if it is his or her own.

This world is a miracle.  I am living large and have no worries in life.  I currently have a beautiful wife and two children.  In this period of time it is socially unacceptable to be single without children at my age.  I’m living in California and I’m currently advertising the newest way to watch movies.  You ingest a pill that causes you to fall asleep and as you’re asleep the movie is played.  When the movie finishes you wake up.  People love this because you’re resting your body as you’re sleeping while watching a movie as if it is your dream.

The dystopian version of 2035

Where is everyone?  I can walk a mile and not see one human being.  The roads are destroyed and I am not sure if my family is alright.  The World went crazy after an attempt to create a laser to destroy an asteroid.  Well that didn’t seem to work.  The laser backfired and took out chunks of the Earth.  Millions of people dead, all technology is gone, and all I have left is my life.

I’m searching long a hard for my friends and family.  I will see crowds of people hovered around a trashcan filled with fire to keep warm, but no sign of them.  It’s boring walking along these roads with no build boards.  No more advertisements?  I never thought how interesting they were and entertaining at the same time.

It’s all because we thought we were so smart with new technologies and we should’ve prepared more for something this serious.  Wow we made a refriedgerator that can talk to us!  When we really should’ve been spending money on a way to defend ourselves from a disaster such as this.  Now what do I do?

Is Media More Addicting Than a Drug?

These past two days must have been the most miserable days of my life.  Until you are actually forced to live without media you never really realize how much media is out there.  Media includes music, billboards, posters, television, cell phones, and many more things that I had never imagined. Television was an any easy thing to avoid, as I don’t watch tv at school as it is, school.  I noticed that I am not one of those people who are addicted to a stupid reality television show.  I have my own interesting life and don’t to watch someone else’s in order to make myself feel better.

The hardest part about this experiment was not being able to use my phone.  Every minute or so I would reach into my pocket thinking that my phone was vibrating or maybe I was receiving another text message.  My phone is my life and I love knowing that I am connected with my friends and can find out what they are doing at any time of day with just a call away.  Without a phone I feel lost and lonely.  This does seem like a problem to me, but it’s something that I simply cannot live without.

On a side note I was searching around on Youtube and I thought this video was intesting….

When the two days of no media were over I had several missed voicemails from my parents asking me “where?” I was and “why?!” I wasn’t answering their precious phone calls.  They threatened to cancel my account and sounded very upset.  This is leads to another thing to think about with media.  Years ago when there were not phones, how did people communicate?  Parents in our society today have become more attached to their children and can always be connected. Some provide their children with cell phones, but there are numerous other ways to communicate such as email, facebook, and web cams. I really connected with the man from the video clip that we watched in class- I just wanted to break down and give up.  Media plays a large role in my life and I never want to experience a life without it.

The Sweet Life with Media

When I was done with my two days of hell the first thing I did was check my phone.  I had over 20 missed calls and 13 text messages.  I responded to all the phone calls and text messages.  I soon was becoming relieved and felt back on track with my life.  Next I needed to check my facebook and see what everyone in the world was doing.  I forgot that my best friends’ birthday was yesterday because with facebook it gives you a reminder of everyone’s birthday and you can simply write on their wall.

Here are some interesting facts about Facebook.

http://www.facebook.com/press/info.php?statistics

Luckily my experiment was over before I took a long car ride back home.  Listening to music in the car makes the ride go by fast and it’s more enjoyable.  I don’t like listening to the car engine next to me that sounds like a constipated old man or the loud noises from construction around campus.

Media makes work faster and it’s more efficient.  I can find out anything in the World in a matter of seconds.  The internet has sites that will answer any question for you and there will be numerous credible sources.  I feel like I do have a media addiction and I don’t feel like it’s such a bad thing to say.  If I didn’t have access to media as a college student in today’s society then I would behind everyone else.  They would have access to more things than I do and I’d most likely not succeed.

Cell phones are a necessity and will always be in today’s society.  When working in a business or raising a family.  Everyone needs to be connected and the easiest way to do that is from cell phones.  In a matter of seconds you can be talking to anyone in the world by one click of a button.  Seems insane, but technology is rapidly increasing and I am looking forward to what the future brings in media.

media history video response

In response to the media history video I felt that it was educating and gave me an idea on how media has changed over time.  It gave me insight to things I hadn’t realized or thought about before watching this video.  I never knew that the printing press was such a big deal when it was first created.  It gave opportunities for news and other important information to reach out to more people.  Before the printing press it was very time consuming and almost difficult to make duplicates.  I would never have thought that telegraphy was to improve public morality and education.  I figured it was simply created for long distance conversation, but nothing more.  I wouldn’t expect telegraphy to change newspapers, but instead of sending reporters all over they could find out information in distances through telegraphy.  I learned what narrowcasting was and how it appealed to as many people as possible such as MTV, ESPN, and CNN.  This reaches out to those who are specifically interested in music, sports, or the news.

Before the television was invented the radio was the biggest media communication to many people at one time.  I have never listened to the radio for information or news.  It is unreal to my generation that families huddled around the radio and would listen to shows or messages from the president.  I am always watching the television for news on the oldest stations; ABC, NBC, and CBS.  I could not imagine myself living without Facebook and my cell phone which makes me sound spoiled compared to how my parents grew up.  It is hard to believe that at one time there wasn’t such a thing of telephones and televisions.  After watching the history of media I am so grateful for what we have today and I’m looking forward to what the future will bring us in mass media.
